Wine Review: This pale straw colored Champagne opens with a stream of fine bubbles and a gentle strawberry and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green apple with hints of light lemon and bread dough. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Champagne would be a perfect New Year's Eve offering. Serve it with chicken satay. Cheers! Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: A pale and sparkling yellow robe, suggestive of vivacity. Nose : The Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances (yellow fruits and fresh fruits) take root, before giving way to subtle notes of vanilla and butter, lending the wine a fruity and consistent character. The notes of cherry plum, lemon and bergamot orange emerge first, then make way for the flowers of fruit trees, such as lime and honeysuckle. These are followed by notes of butter, madeleine cakes and vanilla sugar. Lingering notes of grapefruit, white peaches, green pears, apple trees and green hazelnuts round off the taste. Palate: Ampleness and vivacity balance out in the mouth, developing into a flavour of round and vinous elegance. A fresh, balanced champagne with a long finish. Its flavours are best revealed between 7 and 9°
